About This Listing

It's a drag, isn't it? Having to deal with an upside-down tailpiece on your guitar, that is. Well, you'll get no such disrespect from us. We're happy to offer you this unique conversion kit so that you can easily install a proper left-handed 12-string trapeze in place of that upside-down R. It's a more rakish look, it's infinitely easier to string, it requires no modifications to your guitar, and there's not a bit of "Please, sir, may I have another?" about it.

The kit starts with our one-of-a-kind R-to-trapeze adapter bracket. Using the same holes that your R tailpiece uses (so you don't have to drill your guitar, you know), the bracket will hold that trapeze tailpiece in a firm and loving embrace. "What trapeze?", you ask? Why, this one: our 12-string left-handed trapeze tailpiece (made of chrome-plated steel, dontcha know). Did we mention that it's a left-handed tailpiece? It looks just like the one in your dreams: smooth and shiny and right-side up. And it's made for a 12-string, with a place for each string. No more binding, pinging, buzzing, or rattling because you have two strings in the same hole.  And now you can have one of your very own -- and at a special, discounted price that is lower than the normal cost of the two parts purchased separately.

You get everything you need to swap out your upside-down R tailpiece for the infinitely cooler (and properly oriented) trapeze -- and without drilling any new holes in your guitar. That's right -- you can swap out your R for this trapeze with no more effort than changing two screws. How can you not do this?
